Ultimate iPod Dock

So we were at Trinoma and I wandered inside Avant and saw quite an iPod dock. Not only were you able to directly put your iPod's bottom onto it, but you're also able to put a USB enabled MP3 player, memory card (cannot elaborate), headphone jack, wirelessly through A2DP (Stereo Bluetooth for your cellphone), and get this: a real DVD. Holy shit. All that in a huge (HUGE) speaker, designed in a concealing, sexy, minimalist black, worth P11,800. In Greenhills, it would cost far less.

But all is not well in bargain-land. The interface of the software doesn't complement the stylish exterior, and the navigation is clunky, to say the least. But as far as I can see, its features all work well, and it's most importantly loud.

In a world full of iPod docks that do only that for at least P15,000, this one is a rare gem that's brimming with value for money. If you're looking for an iPod dock that's 'sulit', look for a Next Base dock that has all the features described above as I unfortunately did not get a chance to see the model number and all that jazz.

And while we're on the subject of Trinoma, we ate at this little specialty restaurant called Hossein. Yes, I know, Saddam, but I digress. It's obviously a Persian-Indian-Middle East restaurant that we tried and it's pretty good. Their specialty lies in the various "Kebabs"- basically, grilled meat. Not bad really, but the price tag isn't so pretty to say the least, and the food takes long to prepare since they're grilled, but the waiters are overly nice. Which is probably how they made us order more than we intended, LOL.
